Himalayan Yaky Stick Dog Chew
Himalayan Chews, Dog Chew Treat Made of Yak Milk - Pet Expertise
Himalayan Dog Chews was founded in 2003 after brothers Suman and Sujan Shrestha joined forces with an unrelated friend with the same last name, Nishes Shrestha. The company was started after one of the brothers noticed a dog chewing on the traditional hard cheese of Nepal. The cheese, made from boiled yak’s milk, as well as salt and lime. It’s pressed in burlap for several days, and then smoked, and dried for a few months. After the trio worked to make sure that the product was safe for dogs, they made their first sale in 2007 at a local dog fair.The brothers started off by showing a video, which explained that they lived in Washington, but were born and raised in Nepal. It showed them playing with dogs in a lush yard, and it showed their large family in Nepal. His brother, Sujan, is still in Nepal, handling business with the farmers in Nepal. The three entrepreneurs introduced themselves with a Nepali greeting. They said that they are seeking $750,000 for a 5% stake in Himalayan Dog Chew Company. This seemed to shock the Sharks- they all shook their heads and said “Wooooow.” The trio behind the pet snack company said that they had taken a yak milk snack that was eaten by the Himaylan people, and turned it into an all natural dog treat. The treats are made with yak and cow milk, lime juice, and salt.The Himalayan Dog chew only went up from there. A few months after that dog event, they opened their first commercial space. They have since expanded, directly employing 40 people, and using 3,000 Himalayan farmers for their yak and cow milk. Before going on Shark Tank, they already generated over $5 million dollars in revenue. So why did they need the Sharks? Let’s take a look.Our Himalayan Dog Chews are great because there is minimal waste to them. When your dog chews the chew down to a small "end nub" piece where you would normally toss it due to potential choking or swallowing hazards, you can pop it in the microwave for 45-60 seconds (based on an 1100 watt microwave - add 10 second increments if not fully puffed) and it will puff up into a crunchy cheese puff treat that we call yakyPUFFS. Just place the piece in the microwave (NOT recommended to put on a paper towel), puff up, let it cool for 2 minutes and your dog will have a new exciting treat to enjoy!
